"Endangered Species" is a brand new eco-thriller series written by Vaulte Kamish in association with the SEAM Writers Room.
Will mankind go extinct before it's too late?
This series introduces critical environmental and social issues in a highly entertaining way. By engaging the public in topical debate through entertainment, we hope to make learning (and saving the planet) both exciting and fun - rather than overtly "educational". More important, we hope to inspire dialogue amongst people not normally engaged in this subject matter.
Our premise is that we are currently in the sixth major "mass extinction" event in Earth's history. Unfortunately, this has been largely precipitated by our own behaviour. Time is running out. Yet, it's difficult to care about something this enormous, abstract, and horrific when our own personal lives take priority.
This is where humour and humility come in...
Our story is full of action and adventure, framed by Satire. Less "An Inconvenient Truth" and more "Indiana Jones meets Tropic Thunder".
In addition to mass extinction, the story also lampoons the highly secretive food industry, which is very current given the recent scandals of horsemeat in Europe and the exposure of ecologically disastrous, industrial farming practices.
Book 1, "Diary of an Eco-Warrior", follows the adventures of intrepid but unfortunate, animal-tracker, Chuck Collins, as he travels the globe to save endangered animals from extinction. Problem is - Collins is a disaster magnet. Animals hate him... and they can't wait to tear him apart.
Dogged by the epic failure of his safari amusement park, Animal Land, Collins desperately needs to resurrect his career before self-loathing consumes him. His producer puts him on the trail of vicious creatures in peril - in the hope that something catastrophic will happen on camera and boost ratings.
Reality exceeds expectations, however, when the hapless crew are caught in a cross-fire on their first expedition. Heavily armed poachers appear to be kidnapping exotic and dangerous animals for sport.
"My name is Chuck Collins and I'm on a mission from Gaia."
Inspired by a higher calling, Collins leads his crew on a fast-paced adventure to scupper the poacher's plans, but ends up uncovering a larger conspiracy to save the planet by nefarious means.Buy Now from Amazon [box style="info"]We are offering the first twenty chapters of the book for FREE.
